The recombinant mouse S100A4 consists of 117 amino acids and predicts a molecular mass of 13.8 KDa. It migrates as an approximately 14 KDa band in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.
Lyophilized from sterile PBS, pH 7.4. 1. Normally 5 % - 8 % trehalose, mannitol and 0.01% Tween80 are added as protectants before lyophilization. Specific concentrations are included in the hardcopy of COA. 2. Please contact us for any concerns or special requirements.
Please refer to the specific buffer information in the hard copy of CoA.
In general, recombinant proteins are provided as lyophilized powder which are shipped at ambient temperature. Bulk packages of recombinant proteins are provided as frozen liquid. They are shipped out with blue ice unless customers require otherwise.
稳定性 & 储存条件
Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -70℃ Store it under sterile conditions at -20℃ to -80℃. It is recommended that the protein be aliquoted for optimal storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
A hardcopy of COA with reconstitution instruction is sent along with the products. Please refer to it for detailed information.
S1A4, also known as metastasis-associated protein Mtsl, belongs to the family of small calcium-binding S1 proteins containing two EF-hand calcium-binding motifs. In humans at least 2 S1 family members that are distributed tissue specifically have been identified, and are involved in a number of cellular processes as transducers of calcium signal. S1A4 is a symmetric homodimer, and undergoes a relatively large conformational change upon the typical EF-hand binding calcium, which is necessary for S1A4 to interact with its protein targets and generate biological effects. It can bind the already known targets p53, F-actin, liprin β, myosin heavy chain II, and prevent their phosphorylation and multimerization. It has been demonstrated that S1A4 is directly involved in tumor metastasis including cell motility, invasion, apoptosis, angiogenesis and differentiation, and appears to be a metastasis factor and a molecular marker for clinical prognosis. Multiple alternatively spliced variants encoding the same protein have been identified.
